I never write amazon reviews but this one is really important. My friend sent this book for my toddler and he LOVES IT but the lights only worked like twice. It was a real bummer and a huge tragedy every time we got to the last page. So I ordered another one, opened it when it arrived, and hooray! The lights worked. We read it that night and the lights would not work, much to my son’s dismay. Tonight I was reading it again (we read it nearly every night) and my son said “awww, the lights don’t work.” I told him I was sorry about that, that even the new one doesn’t work anymore and sometimes that’s just how life works. Then my husband said over the monitor: “shine your phone flashlight on the lights.” I assumed this would provide an optical illusion, but did it anyway - and they lit up!! Every single time! They seem to have some sort of sensor that causes them to not activate if the room is too dark. So shine your phone flashlight on them and have a happy kiddo.
Other reviewers listed problems with batteries; as I stated we haven't had any issues and we had read the book a lot and that doesn't count the number of times my son is just opening and closing the book to see the lights. But the batteries for the book are 3 LR1130/AG10 which is a pretty common battery in kids books that make noise, have lights, etc. I have purchased a big pack of these batteries from Amazon probably 6 months ago for a very inexpensive price because we probably have 5-6 books that use this same battery. Just a FYI for people that say that have battery issues and/or can't find the batteries, check Amazon.
This book is great because it’s simple but still has a nice story line. It’s simple enough for distracted toddlers to follow! The illustrations are gorgeous, and the animals are so cute. I love that it incorporates counting, common sounds/action words, animals, and general Christmas themes. This is perfect to start reading early before the holiday season, especially before you go and get your Christmas tree. I highly recommend this for all ages, but especially 2 year olds. The tree lights up at the end… such a wow factor!! ✨
This is also on the Amazon fire tablet for free (on FreeTime), so your little one can read it wherever they are. Hope this helps! ☺️
First off, the book itself is a flimsy quality. While it is technically "hard cover", the pages aren't well suited for our 12 month old. We stick to board books and thought this would fit in the same category as the other Little Blue Trucks. I wish this were advertised as a regular book or had something in the description so parents knew it wasn't like the others.
Second, the story isn't as much fun. Sure counting trees is great, but we can count anything on the pages without the story simply revolving around counting. It kind of feels like the publishing company said "just get something Christmas related out there - it'll sell great". Doesn't have the same uniqueness and special touch that the others have.
Third - and this is a big reason for the 1 star - the twinkle lights are INSANELY bright. Hurt my eyes bright. I don't want my child to look at them bright. We ended up shelving the book instead of reading it, and I'm going to rip out the electronics before we reintroduce it next year.
TL;DR: I'm a fan of other little blue truck books, but this one really missed the mark.

I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this book, I was pleasantly surprised and my daughter adores this book and even reads it back to us as best she can. Highly recommend for young children.
